Good evening once again ladies and gentlemen,and welcome to Mar's only public cinema,where we get the chance to see our boys and girls in action
For those of you who are still struggling to come to grips with the EF have no fear,as for the last 2 hrs or so I have been studying these little pests,and have come up with some good strategies to use against them.
So listen up!
1: it is IMPERATIVE that you create a solid base area,with good long range fire support,preferably with 2 gunners who excel at long range marksmanship.
2:You MUST bring with you a grenade launcher or similar weapon,for critical area effect support,as the RF and EF attack en-masse and are easy to target this way.
3: you must send your scout far ahead of the main force to look for the main threat here,the MCUs.He will be pivotal in being able to provide your grenade launcher operative (I use him just like a mortar) with line of sight to the target/s.
4: you must nominate a member as the ammo man,so he can bring along extra grenades and drop them off next to the grenade launcher (GL).
5: your scout MUST remain mobile,so as not to be flanked and attacked by the MCUs by surprise.Many times have I been MC'd by an invisible force,and that is how to counter it.
6: the most important rule however,is good target aqquisition,and being able to rotate your fire intelligently and decisively through the enemy formation.Example,use the 2 long range gunners to target MCUS and flanking forces,so that the enemy remains at least partially down your centre.If attacked by superior numbers every man must then mark his/her targets and fire at will.Bombard the enemy generally where the highest concentration is with area-effect weapons,until the enemy becomes more manageble.A sniper would be extra useful here to target MCUs and Expedition Rocketmen (ER),so that the rest of the squad can concentrate on the other threats.
7:any stragglers can be attacked traditionally,and the base formation can be abandoned,for a more looser formation.
Trust me here,do not think I am being too tactical,the EF are VERY dangerous,and these tactics work,as the following shots shall show.
Here the squad assume their positions and establish a base,with good perimeter security,and grenade support is towards the middle out of harm.
Having bombarded countless EF,one remaining Ret tried to flee for his life.We of course cannot allow that and we opened fire with the mortar...well GL
I was attacked easily by about 15 or so EF,and only my scout recieved light damage.
Hope all this helps you out there soldier,trust me,you'll need it!.
